Will JT residents see themselves on TV?
The town of Jim Thorpe will likely get more recognition tonight.
Featured on The Travel Channel (For Blue Ridge Communication subscribers, channel 66 or channel 670 for high definition) at 8 p.m. will be the show "Best of the Road."
The program will feature the "Best Small Towns in America."
Jim Thorpe received an "honorable mention" in the rankings for "most beautiful" towns.
Named "most beautiful" was Bardstown, Ky., while other honorable mention towns were Baker City, Ore.; Danville, Ky., and Sedona, Ariz.
Rankings occurred in five categories: Most beautiful, most patriotic, best for food, friendliest, and most fun.
The winners were selected by teams who traveled in RVs and visited the communities.
It's not certain how much of each town will be shown on tonight's Travel Channel presentation, but obviously Jim Thorpe will receive a mention.
